BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:25 A.M.) – The Turkish-backed Ahrar Al-Sharqiyah faction clashed with several armed civilians in the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate on Monday.

According to reports from eastern Aleppo, Ahrar Al-Sharqiyah fighters clashed with the armed civilians inside the Tarheen Refugee Camp near the town of Qabasin.

No reason was cited for the clashes inside the Tarheen Refugee Camp; however, locals reported that the firefights lasted for a considerable amount of time before they finally dissipated.

Firefights between armed civilians and rebel groups have become weekly occurances in eastern Aleppo, with tensions increasing over the corruption of the Turkish-backed rebel groups.

Looting, theft, and arbitrary arrests were previously a major problem in the Afrin region; this required the Turkish military to get involved and crackdown on these rebel groups.

Total breakdown of security in turkish occupied regions. Mercenaries among themselves, mercenaries against refugee civilians, mercenaries against kurdish civilians, kurdish insurgents against mercenaries, against Turks, against settlers, YPG guerilla against all but kurdish civilians.

A chaos. That is what Turkey brings, plus ethnic cleansing, plus looting, plus sharia.

Seems you are a bit confused. Turkish army is turkish not Israëli. Some antisemites, like you to, are sometimes a bit confused mentally.

There are some rumors among pro SDF tweets that SDF will join Idlib fight. Do not believe that as long as there is no credible deal between Assad and SDF.

No doubt the present fight only pleases Russia and Assad, while SDF must be ecstatic. Mercenary forces suffering large losses, while they build up.

SDF are on Izrael’s payroll, they are the same mercenaries (as you).
